"Don't Cha Wanna Ride" as written by Steve Greenberg, Michael Anthony Mangini, Betty Wright, Desmond Child, Eugene Records, Joss Stone and William N. Sanders....
I know you got the hummer for the summer baby
But I got your number baby
I got your number baby

I was trying to protect you from yourself
'Cause I respect you
And I feel like you just might
Be some one who I could get into
But I never seem to catch your eye
And it's been buggin' me why I even try
Still you're someone I'd like to get to know
Is there room for me in your one-man show

[Chorus:]
A car this fine don't pass your way everyday
Don't cha want to ride baby
Don't cha want to ride baby
A car this fine don't pass your way everyday
Don't cha want to ride baby
Don't cha want to ride baby
Time is slipping by, by, by
Slipping by

I was trying to connect with you
But you acted scared when I'm checkin you
And all my girls say you're hard to please
But I think that I got just what you need
Get your face out of the mirror
Then maybe you could consider
This girl who's knockin' right at your door
Make room for me in your one-man show

[Chorus]

I know you got the hummer for the summer baby
But I got your number baby
I got your number baby

I know where you live
I know all 'bout your crib
But do you know that they can't give you what I give

[Chorus]

    General CommentNice song, good rhythm. I can partially forgive that she really is imitating the old R&B style and that her lyrics are very teenage, because the song is catchy and uplifting.

    General CommentThe beat and lyrics are so mellow and smooth, that it just makes me want to close my eyes and start dancing.

    General Commentit is one good song.(one of my faves in her min,body and soul album)
    well,this song has a good vibe.
    don't cha wanna ride is like saying,don't let a goodie and a keeper like me pass you by...why can't we be together and stuff.
    perfect for those crushing moments.let's you keep that flustered feeling.
